Urban planning was our inspiration for the functional planning of the McCann Riga offices. We designed stylised “streets” with “houses”, podiums, and floor level flowerbeds.
Considering the limited budget, we made use of simple materials like lacquered MDF, white paint and planks to create pieces of furniture and finishings. We were early adopters of the upcycling idea. See, for example, the counter made of household junk. Every employee contributed an item from their home that they no longer used, so everyone felt like a part of the creative process. The lamps are made of cardboard tubes which were once fabric rolls.
Proving that one man’s trash is another man’s gold. The McCann Riga offices won ‘Best foreign interior’ at the Moscow-based Best Office Awards 2011.
